XM & Sirius Merge – Listen To Both In Your Mercedes

Owners of 2008 and newer Mercedes can now add “The Best of XM” to their existing account. However, some vehicles will require a trip to the shop for updated software.

If you have a 2008 or 2009 S/CL-Class or a 2009 SL/SLK/E/CLS/M/R/GL-Class with a Command head unit your software update should be available mid-October.

If you have a 2008 E/CLS/SLK-Class with a Command head unit the software update is currently being tested and they are hoping to have it available by the beginning of November.

All other 2008 and 2009 vehicles should receive “The Best of XM” without a software update.

SLK55 AMG – Customer Testimonial


While shopping for a luxury/sports car, I looked at most all of the manufacturers. When I finally got around to testing the Mercedes, My SLK 55 AMG won out hands down. German engineering and construction shows itself well on the Mercedes, but how they blend it all together is what makes the SLK 55 AMG a powerhouse in the bang for the buck category. I met Jesse at Atlanta Classic Cars and took it out for a spin. The car far exceeded my expectations. The SLK 55 AMG is the best mix of being pampered in a small sports car, and brute, raw force. It will throw you back in the seat. It also looks so good doing it. Best of all, it oozes Mercedes craftsmanship. You really get the feeling that the car is not delicate and is made to be driven beyond normal car endurance. You can stick our foot in the firewall and not feel like you are going to hurt it. NICE!

It was such a pleasure to go on a test ride with someone who knows the product. Too many times I would ask somebody about the car I was test driving and I would get answers like ” I just started working here ” or ” I don’t know.” That is not the case with Jesse, she simply had all the answers. It is such a pleasure to work with a real professional. I felt confident with the car after she explained all the things I had to know about it.

I just had my first service with the car…painless. You are assigned a person who looks over you needs and they are a fist class outfit at ACC. Rick Casanova and especially Christy Hicks took care of me. What impressed me the most was the fact that you can see how very busy they were, but Christy made me feel that my car and my needs were her only concern. It’s not merely good training they receive for customer care, they hire well. It doesn’t get any better than that. Atlanta Classic Cars is clearly the very best in all around sales and service. I can’t say enough about them, and Jesse is the best in the business.

Atlanta Classic Cars SLK55 Owners Meetup

Atlanta Classic Cars SLK Owners Meetup

Atlanta Classic Cars hosted a meeting for some of our fastest owners this weekend. SLK55 AMG owners from the Atlanta area were invited to the dealership to meet up. They compared accessories and talked upgrades before heading up to Chateau Elan for lunch.

It was great to see such an impressive collection of vehicles and talk to such an enthusiastic bunch of owners! Three of my own clients were able to make it. I am glad that Shelton, Rick and Joe are satisfied buyers! Thanks for coming and I hope you’ll visit again soon!

2009 SLK350 Wins Hearts at Automobile Magazine!

Automobile Magazine reviewed the 2009 SLK350 this week and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Mercedes-Benz 2009 SLK350

“Let me just say right off the bat that I love the new SLK350.”

“And the best parts of the SLK were things that I never expected: the engine and the steering.”

“Turn the key, and the SLK350′s 3.5-liter V-6 will surprise you with its throaty exhaust note. Stomp on the gas, and you’ll be positively shocked. This is one of the best-sounding V-6 engines on sale today, if not the best.

“The suspension is taut but gives a surprisingly smooth ride at highway speeds. Handling is fairly neutral, and grip is prodigious. Brake feel is excellent, and cross-drilled rotors stay quiet all the time. The chassis is remarkably solid and free of scuttle shake.”

SLK Panorama Roof Option?

Pano Roof SLK I love the Panorama roof option. Photos recently hit the Internet of an SLK with a prototype of this option. This is a stunning option on the SL and makes the hardtop convertible experience even better. A great side effect of the Panorama roof is that the black glass roof gives most cars a really nice look. The S-Class and E-Class with this option are great examples of this. The car that would really look great with this option is the CLS. It would probably hurt back seat head room though…
